Thread Titles and Unwanted Persistence
« on: January 25, 2007, 12:36:23 PM »

Reference:

http://www.golfhos.com/topic-1799

Scenario:

A thread is started by an overfed, long-haired leaping gnome.  He forgets to append to said title a spoiler alert.  Mortified, he rushes back in and fixes the problem by posting a new title.  He then retreats to his home and loved ones and prepares himself for the rituals of Seppuku.  The thing is, there have already been a few posts added to the thread and they all have the original title.  As people quote existing posts the recent posts page reflects the title as it appears in the quoted post.  'Tis a crapshoot.

Solution:

Normalize the damn database.  Errrrmmmm, I mean, is there a way to have the recent posts page reflect the title as held by the original post?

Even after you edit the title, I think your original title remains until someone replies in the thread.  Scroll through the thread and look at the titles appearing the posts' headers -- you can see the changes.

Clive, what seems to happen is that the new post takes on its title one of two ways.

(1) If it's a simple 'reply' it gets the title of either the thread itself or the original post.  Hard to say if the former is even possible without seeing the schema.

(2) If it's a quoted response it gets the title of the quoted post. 

If you run down the thread you can kind of see how this plays out.  Keep in mind that my response to TFT was the first time I modified the title and then later I modified the title of the original post.   As everyone replied and quoted other posts the titles propagated accordingly.
